Muslim organization commends the efforts of Security forces
TORONTO, June 5 /CNW/ - ICNA Canada, a national organization of Canadian Muslims, joins other fellow Canadians in commending the efforts of our security forces to combat terrorism in Canada. ICNA Canada condemns terrorism in all of its forms and believes that it should be dealt appropriately. National security is a top most priority for all of us and we urge all Canadians, including the Muslim community, to cooperate with the security forces to combat all forms of terrorism. However we urge and hope that authorities will take due care in making sure that innocent individuals are not subjected to serious allegations of terrorism, in this regard. Canadian Muslims also asked the authorities to make sure that Muslim Community does not become the target of any backlash or hostility in the perspective of these unfortunate events. ICNA Canada has confidence that our justice system will accord these individuals transparency of due process and the presumption of innocence.
